We're arriving this week and wanted to check 5th avenue out but I've read some posts here that have me a bit apprehensive, especially now in light of the recent shooting. Is 5th avenue safe to walk around during the day with a 16 month old? My sister has visited the area and mentioned aggressive vendors and people trying to sell you drugs. I would hope they wouldn't bother with us since we have a baby but who knows. Anyway, would it be ok to walk around and do a little souvenir shopping and are there any particular areas we should check out?
Thanks in advance!
